Changing winbindd parameters while running

I am playing around with the idea of changing winbindd parameters while it
This is principally because Panasas uses winbindd to do lookups of UNIX
information from the Panasas distributed file system, as well as have
Samba (and PAM, if available) do Windows lookups.
To that end, we have a -u flag which places winbindd into UNIX-only mode.
I want to make this mode dynamic and based on parameters in the smb.conf
file like 'winindd uid range' and 'winbindd gid range'.
One gotcha is that if you have already performed mappings of SIDs to UIDs,
and you try to shift the UID range, you have problems, but I wondered if
people can see other problems associated with this approach?
